Another Gikomba fire…*sigh*
Another day for the common ‘mwnanachi’ to count their losses in this tough economic environment.
Just imagine it.
What would you do if you found your stall burnt to a crisp, knowing that you have 5 mouths to feed?
Sadly, this is the terrible fate that many Kenyans woke up to today!
In response, the ‘so-called’ vice president took to Twitter to comment on the situation. As usual, the proverbial air of sarcasm was prevalent in his comment!
Fellow Kenyans, #GikombaFire is an annual event. We’re soon going to include it on our calendars.

Not knowing that this was a fake account, some netizens did not take to the tweet lightly. Here is one individual that went all guns blazing at the ‘vice president.’
Really… You actually can’t be serious na unangoja 2022 upewe kura….. Ati we include it in our calendars instead of finding solutions…. Next time utaonea kura kwa viusasa…

Yes, Kenyans were mad! Here is another netizen that took his grievances directly to Weston Hotel and even attacked the ‘vice president’s’ intellect!
So you are suggesting that we don’t look for solutions of this but instead include and celebrate it in our calendar?? Brilliant leader you are because our parents will eat from Weston Hotel… A graduate you are indeed. Cc @MigunaMiguna

Unfortunately for those who woke up on the wrong side of the bed, they had no idea this particular tweet was the work of an internet troll.
For those that did, however, they had a good laugh.
This is so funny ??#sickhumor

And here is another netizen who enjoyed the dark humor from the ‘vice president.’

Rumour has it that the fake account is run by none other than Eric Omondi.
